Quick Review: Mad Father (PC/Switch)

I’ve talked about Misao: Definitive Edition a couple weeks ago. I did find that there was at least a marginal amount of appeal to that game, but it fell apart under close scrutiny and it becomes hard to recommend. Mad Father was originally released in 2012 as a freeware title and was the second game …

Has it Held up? – Metroid (NES) (Standard Review)

Recently I decided to play through the original Metroid on a whim. I have a specific set of games I want to play through, but I always tend to deviate from that schedule eventually. The reason why I decided to was because I have actually never played the first Metroid before this. I have played …

Quick Review: Always The Same Blue Sky (PC)

Misao: Definitive Edition (PC): A Poor Man’s Corpse Party (Detailed Review)

TW: References to Violence, Gore, and child abuse. Lately I have had an interest in the “RPG Maker horror game” sub genre of sorts. The last one I covered was (Mario) The Music Box which I certainly enjoyed but my space bar did not. Prior to that the only other games I played of this …

Disclaimer: Rather than putting up a usual content warning at the start, I’m just going to say that if you are sensitive to any strong content and will be negatively affected, then I would not advise reading this article. I briefly talked about the content of the game in my original review, but this article …
